Search for Gold

Get More Out of the Bible

Key Bible Verse: The laws of the LORD are true; each one is fair. They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb. (Psalm 19:9-10)

Dig Deeper: Psalm 19:7-11

I’ve heard stories of churches in China that have had only one Bible for an entire congregation. They take that Bible, tear out pages, and give them to individual members of the congregation to memorize. For many of these underground Christians, Bibles are as valuable as gold – even more so. We need to see that same value in God’s Word and not take it for granted. As [today’s Key Bible Verses] say, “The laws of the LORD … are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold.”

When you’re reading through the Bible, think about it as though you were mining for gold. Do you look for a quarter if you drop it? I do. Let’s say that you somehow misplaced one million dollars. Do you think you would search for it? If I’m willing to look for a quarter, then I would definitely look for a million dollars.

My point is that there is buried gold in the pages of Scripture. You need to get into it, search for it, and find all the treasure that’s in the Bible for you.
